A grey day

Night time temperatures have been reasonable lately so the moth trap attracted
November Moth agg.

Angle Shades

Feathered Thorn

A dank, grey dreary day of low cloud, mist and occasional showers made our visit to the pond pretty awful so grateful we managed to find a Med Gull in toft bay which moved to join the rest of the gulls in the fields behind farborough spit. Only other birds of note were a Wheatear, 15 Meadow Pipit, 2 Pochard, 2 Goldeneye, Black-necked Grebe and a party of Skylark flew under the low cloud.
We had just reached the car park when Colin rang regarding 6 Brambling near the Coalpit Lane /A4071 junction so we went for a look but only found Kingfisher, 3 Lesser Redpoll, and Treecreeper while dodging the cement wagons and car transporters.

Bob did well to get a record shot of the Med Gull in the gloom
